Somalia's Prime Minister Sharmarke Resigns
Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke has been under intense pressure to resign for some months in the country. On going struggles with President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed has not helped his cause. Mr Sharmarke said he had decided to step down in the national interest."After seeing that the political turmoil between me and the president has caused security vulnerability, I have decided to resign to save the nation and give a chance to others", is what he told reporters as he left his office for the last time. Hopefully this will bring an end to the internal turmoil in the government and peace throughout the country between the Islamist militant groups and the military.
